More video of 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon’s offseason work

Jun 2, 2020 at 4:38 PM--

Jerick McKinnon continues his offseason work and journey back onto the football field for the first time since 2017. The San Francisco 49ers signed the running back in 2018 with the intention of making him a featured weapon on offense. McKinnon hasn't yet played a regular-season snap for the team after suffering a season-ending ACL injury just a week before his regular-season debut.

A setback before the 2019 season once again landed McKinnon on injured reserve.

Rischad "The Footwork King" Whitfield posted the following video of McKinnon showing off his footwork while training this offseason (h/t to Patrick Tulini for the find).

The latest video comes after Whitfield posted the following workout video of McKinnon last month.

McKinnon rushed for 570 yards with three touchdowns on 150 carries and added 51 receptions for 421 yards with two more scores during his last full season — a 2017 campaign with Minnesota.

The running back restructured his contract with the 49ers this offseason, reducing his salary-cap hit on what becomes a deal that will now extend only through the upcoming season.

How Kyle Shanahan's Seven-Man Protections Work in the 49ers' Offense

By Bret Rumbeck
Jul 2, 2020

The seven-man pass protection in today's NFL seems a little foreign, considering how much the tight end position has evolved over the last 20 years. Today's hybrid tight end, a man built from DNA spliced from a sprinter, basketball player and professional wrestler, has an integral role in the passing attack. A generation ago, San Francisco 49ers tight end Brent Jones finished his career averaging 36.3 receiving yards per game. Flash twenty-five years in the future and tight end George Kittle is averaging 65.4 yards per game over his first three seasons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan's system is firmly rooted in the West Coast Offense, even mimicking some of Bill Walsh's old

Arik Armstead continues offseason training with a familiar ex-49ers defender

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead is working hard this offseason to prove that his team-leading 10-sack 2019 campaign was no fluke, and after signing a lucrative five-year deal to remain with the San Francisco 49ers. It looks like Armstead is training with a familiar face, too. San Jose-area photographer Pierre Whitsey comes through again with some photos from San Jose State on Monday, showing Armstead training with former teammate DeForest Buckner. The 49ers in March traded Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the No. 13 overall pick, which, after trading down one spot, ended up becoming the selection of Buckner's replacement — defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw. You can indulge in a small sample of Whitsey's photos of the two defenders

Raheem Mostert requested a pay raise this offseason, per report

By David Bonilla

There is no doubt that, based on his contributions toward the end of last season and in the playoffs, Raheem Mostert is grossly underpaid. That's why the San Francisco 49ers running back requested a pay raise this offseason, according to Josina Anderson. Mostert accepted a multi-year deal last offseason. Of course, that was long before his 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The running back would like to rework the deal, per the report, as an acknowledgment of his increased
